{Sad Hope Songs} "Beautiful Things" by Gungor



This is the first song that I listened to after Eve died.  It was passed on to me by a friend.  At first I could not listen to it -- I didn't want the darkness that the song talks about, the dark that beauty is born out of.  But as I began to throw myself on the Lord in my desperation for answers, this song kept coming back to mind.

Now, exactly 10 weeks from the day that I birthed my daughter's body, I am able to say yes -- give me the beautiful things, please.  If I have to have the dark, then redeem it, Father. You're the only one who can.

I hurt so much.

Every Sunday I share a song that has particularly soothing or healing to me since my daughter, Eve, was stillborn.  I call these kinds of song "sad hope songs," because they are usually melancholy sounding but also full of the beautiful hope that is born out of pain.  To pass a song onto me, please leave your recommendation in the comments.
